Cocoa Butter Cake

I always love butter cake, so does DH
This makes my eyes blink everytime I find butter cake recipe with nice pictures
Just like this one - I found this recipe at Nasi Lemak Lover
Seeing the pictures, I was like, ok, I'll try this asap!!!

Easy to make and great taste - even my fussy mum said, this is nice - give me the recipe :)

What you need:

250g butter
160g sugar
4 eggs
250g cake flour
1tsp vanilla essence
2tsp of double action baking powder
4tbsp milk
2tbsp cocoa powder and ½ tsp coffee powder mix with 3tbsp hot water

Sift cake flour and baking powder in a bowl
Beat butter with the sugar until pale and fluffy
Add in egg one at a time, add in vanilla, mixing well
Fold in flour and milk, combine well
Mix ½ portion of cake mixture with cocoa mixture
Pour cake mixture into cake tin and follow by cocoa cake mixture ( i did this but after that I swirl the cocoa cake mixture hence the marbled effect)
Bake in pre-heated oven at 180C for 30mins or skewer came out clean

Great for tea time! :)
